Re: Windows 8, Windows 10......that's not the problem here....

Since 1991, I've bought fourteen PCs or laptops, and each time Microsoft has got (some say) $100 of my money.

Since 1986 or 7, I've purchased ~40 computers. Just 8 of those came with either MS DOS or Windows. Indeed, when I attempted to purchase DOS 3.2 for my second XT clone, MS told me that they didn't sell DOS at retail, so I purchased DR DOS 3.x instead. Of course I could have purchased System V Release 2 for $US43,000 with three months of support, but decided it was just a tad too expensive. IIRC I paid ~$AU65 for DR DOS and that would have been ~$US30 in those days.
